    Knob Creek Smoked Maple....

    Ok, just purchased this and am having my first glass. All I can say is.....

    WOW !!!!

    I am really liking this stuff! Can't help it. I love bourbon. And maple syrup. And the smell of Fall, chimney smoke (even though I live in S Fl and this is non-existent....) Throw it all together and I feel like I'm drinking bourbon with Aunt Jemima up in the Smoky Mountains, right before Halloween. I'm also getting a background hint of candy corn. Smooth as hell, not too sweet, at least for my taste, and a nice 90 proofer. Something different, without being overwhelming. Dangerously good. Dessert in a glass.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I guess.

    Let the bashing begin.....!

    when an ABC manager friend and I saw this on the shelf, we're like add bacon favor and ya got all ya need for breakfast. But both of us thought this might be fun to try. Haven't tried it yet, but your review makes it enticing.

    Tried it during the KBF while touring Jim Beam ... actually, I like Royal Crown Maple better. Not a bad novelty drink though ... I'm a sucker for anything maple.
    Sto lat!!!

    Mod - please move this thread to Other American Whiskey. IMHO, It does not belong in the Bourbon Section.

    At the risk of starting the war all over again I agree and did move it.
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    I tried a sample of this and it wasn't bad for what it is. A flavored whiskey. I think calling this stuff knob creek is a shame. The marketing and bean counters wanting a product in the premium category.

    Beam and others are obviously creating whole product families around brand names.
